Several hundred enjoyed the concerts of choral music of Balkan region at the end of February 2010. The Balkan peninsula region is rich with history and it is the place where many cultures interlace: from Ancient Greece to modern Hungary, via several Slavic nations - Serbs, Macedonians, Bulgarian, Croats and others. All of the music heritage has very complicated and abundant rhythm, like 7/8, 9/8, and similar. This concert was an opportunity for American audience to enjoy choral music with all of these unusual rhythms. For more info go to  Concerts
